You don’t have to be able to paint a watercolor landscape, shape a sculpture from clay, or compose a symphony to be a true artist. Science and the arts have long been developing collaboratively, though their connection is not always evident. Both intrinsic qualities of creativity, integrating science and art can boost attention, cognition, working memory, and reading fluency.
Is your child a builder, an inventor, a dreamer? Then join Walking Mountains Science Center, in partnership with the John McConnell Math and Science Center of Western Colorado, on Saturday, March 18th from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm for an afternoon of Artistic Engineering. Instructors will skillfully facilitate activities, experiments, and crafts that highlight how integral these concepts are in our lives and how one often functions best when accompanied by the other.
Children grades third through sixth grades will build fully functional Art Robots that will be able to make abstract art drawings. This is not a drop off program – guardians are required to attend.
